  1. Aim Virus using myspace link PLEASE HELP (HJT Attached)

    Hi,

    So, I was recently infected with this aim virus that asks to put a picture of me on myspace, and now it ims everyone on my buddy list with a link to it. I tried to remove it with aimfix and thought it was gone but then I went back online and all my groups were minimized and it eventually imed all my friends again. I know there have been fixes already posted to this but I was hoping someone could walk me through it just so I make sure I don't mess up my computer.

    I attached my hjt file as a .txt like it says in the rules so hopefully this will speed up the process.

    Thank you

    I just turned off system restore and restarted in safe mode. After that, I ran hjt again and the checklist came up. Can anyone walk me through how to fix aim from here? Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Try running the aimfix tool when you're in Safe Mode.
